Aging does not mean slowing down nor does retirement. The more active you are, the more that you will find that you have more energy. Life is about building you and your life experience. You are building your mountain of knowledge and legacy step by step year by year.
Staying physically and mentally active are both equally important. These do not have to cost a lot of money. Explore the world around you, appreciate life and give gratitude for each new day. Be age defying…not life defying.
To be sure age does bring change. It can be changes of jobs, moving, losing loved ones and dear friends, it can mean facing new medical issues, changes with family. Most important is to grasp out and reach as far forward as you can to adapt in positive ways to the change. Sometimes that means rising to levels you never thought you would have to reach for or are possible.
Age is not about sitting back in a rocker or reclining chair and taking the sedentary approach to life – “Oh I so much when I was younger, not much reason to anymore. Do you need a good kick to get you going? Think of so many people who have passed early in life. Consider the many children who are ill and what they would give to lead a healthy life and may never had the opportunity. Make your life a legacy to be savored and enjoyed by current and future generations.
Age is a gift of life. Life should be savored. Remember a healthy appetite for life serves everyone well no matter what your age.
To you, to living, to life and educating the world on your life experience.
